David Dempster

“There has been a decline in music-making. The days of singing around the piano are virtually gone, replaced by television, video games and the internet. I want to open up the world of music-making to anyone who wants it.” David Dempster

“Read and Play Music seems to be one of the gentlest approaches I’ve encountered for teaching music theory and piano. Students who follow Dempster’s instructions can’t help but be successful.” Music Teacher Cathy Duffy
